Obama Takes on Romney’s PBS Cuts

Speaking at a rally in Madison, Wis., President Obama took issue with Mitt Romney's plans for cutting federal funding for PBS.

"When he was asked what he would do to actually cut spending and reduce
the deficit, he said he'd eliminate public television funding," Obama
said, per Talking Points Memo. "But I just want to make sure  got this straight. He'll get rid of
regulations on Wall Street — but he's going to crack down on Sesame
Street."
